I grew up on the Peninsula. Went to college for two years in Seattle, lived in Woodinville and Duvall for three years, and now live in the Spokane area.  It's better over here by miles.

It's okay, @knight1fox3. I found this one on my own.

I was led to believe that D.C. was a swamp in need of draining.

It was drained. He just forgot to tell us the part where he refilled it with raw sewage.

Reminds me of the other day, when a text I received said "Snoke" instead of "smoke".

I got a LinkedIn recruiter message in German for a structural engineer position in Freiburg! A recruiter after my own heart.

You'd have to confirm with someone who watches Futurama.

Ever had a recruiter say "So you're an engineer, how would you like to drive trains across the U.S. for BNSF Railway?"

Received a recruiter phone call today. Nothing particularly out of the ordinary...except I don't have my phone number listed on my profile.  When I asked him how he got my number, he said his company uses a software that will do public records searches based on information on Linked In. He said, "It's scary how much information is out there in the public areas, huh?"

I hung up on him.

I don't know how our system works but you must have your information posted somewhere

It's very annoying and unprofessional.  Especially when in a small office and you have to explain to boss why recruiters are contacting you.

Nothing I've noticed.  I must not be a target since the Chinese already copied our plant design.

I had some lady texting me asking if I was interested in a position.  She didn't introduce herself or her company and when I asked who she was, she referred to an old voicemail she left months ago.  I told her I was not interested and to stop contacting me over text messages.  Talk about unprofessional.
